Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are employee-led groups formed around common interests, issues, or a shared bond or background. These groups are a powerful extension of the Office of Leadership and Professional Development’s programming offerings, providing leadership opportunities for those who wish to initiate or lead a group and fostering a supportive community where all employees can experience a greater sense of belonging. For more information about current ERGs or starting a new one visit here.
